Dear Personnel Manager

Application for position of Assistant Officer

I’m interested in the position of assistant officer of BNP Paribas (China) Ltd. advertised in the www.zhaopin.com.

I think that it is a challenge job for me to be an assistant officer in such a good international bank. A position with your bank would give me a chance to touch with different people and deal with different problems relevant with bank management. It must be interesting and challenge.

I feel I am well qualified for this position. I have good inter-personal skill and communication skill. I also have basic knowledge to bank products and services. I can speak fluent Mandarin and English, and I can prepare official letters both in Chinese and English. Moreover, I am a hard-working and friendly person. I’d like to deal with different problems. A resume enclosed giving details of my educations, other stills and other trainings. If I got the job, it would be my first full-time job. I will do my best to do it well.

I would be happy to attend an interview to give you more information of me. I can be contacted on 13162504369.

Yours sincerely

Kate Chan

I think that it is a challenge job

Shouldn't that be 'challenging'. Also,consider changing 'I think'. I wouldn't use the phrase in a letter like this as it sounds unsure. ;-)
